We may partner with third-party ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on our behalf and others’ on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the Properties and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising.

Slay sauce adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection with this interest-based advertising activity. If you delete your cookies, reset your device advertising identifier, or use a different browser or mobile device, you will need to renew your opt-out choice. You may also be able to limit data collection for advertising purposes using tools available on your device. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. Even if you opt out, Advertising Providers may continue to collect data for other purposes, including analytics and other operational purposes.

We may also work with third parties that collect data about your use of the Properties and other sites or apps over time for non-advertising purposes.  Slay sauce uses Google Analytics and other third-party services to improve the performance of the Properties and for analytics and marketing purposes.
